The Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures include some of the foremost voices on a new economics.
When Andrew Kimbrell examines what is causing the greatest social and ecological havoc in today's world, it is not what we traditionally think of as evil crimes committed in the hot passion of the moment. Instead the problems stem from our misuse of technology, a technology wielded by some very nice people, neighbors we have come to like and trust. Kimbrell blames the scale of technology that creates a double distancing between the user of technology and the consequences of that use. The lecture is a highly original reflection on the current condition of our society.
